Help Chithra Secure A Home

Chithrambika has been with Pallium India for last 6 years. She is a palliative care assistant who takes care of housekeeping and hygiene of the facility.
Her husband abandoned her 30 years ago when her son was 2.5 years and daughter was 1 year-old. Since then, she has worked as cleaning staff in different hospitals, raising her children with her earnings.
Chithra used her savings to get her daughter married, who went on to have a son. The marriage was rocky and Chitra's daughter committed suicide 6 years ago, leaving behind a 2.5 years old child, who Chithra now supports.
Chithra’s son has seriously impaired vision, rendering him almost blind. He hold the temporary position of an attender at the Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre. His earnings are negligible.
Chithra single-handedly supports her 9 year old grandson, her ailing mother and her own son.
She has spent years saving up for a home, which is now at risk of being lost of she cannot raise 2.5 Lakhs by the end of the month. She has already taken loans with rather high interest rates and has mortgaged her valuables. Most of her salary goes into clearing the interest.
Helping her secure this home would give Chithra and her dependents some respite from what has already been a terribly uphill struggle.  

Please note: The raised funds of 2.5 lacs (3498 USD) will be utilised for the payment of procuring her house from the land owner. Chithra has already put in all her savings of 2.5 lacs and applied for a loan of 6 lacs to complete the rest of the payment. The total cost of the house is 11 lacs (15,392 USD).
